Reilly from Oregon talks about getting sober as a young woman in AA, going from riding motorcycles to quilting, and her current service as a Regional Trustee. Reilly, Don and Sam discuss the advantages of no longer fighting anyone or anything and staying out of controversy. Don describes his visit to the GSO Archives, and there’s a feature on the Grapevine Daily Quote.
